Grand Final Eve Public Holiday Confirmed

Employment Law: 23 March 2019

The Small Business Minister Philip Dalidakis has confirmed AFL grand final eve as a public holiday, meaning Friday October 2 will be a public holiday this year. 

The decision followed a consultation period in which the Victorian Government accepted submissions regarding the impact of a new public holiday. 

Businesses who choose to open on AFL grand final eve will be required to pay their staff applicable penalty rates.
